vintage china teacup candelabra



I finally got to finish up my teacup candelabra centrepiece, just in time for White Wednesday! There was a similar project in a recent issue of Country Living, only theirs held five teacups. Must say I quite like the three.




painted the brass candelabra heirloom white (several coats) and tied on a little piece of vintage lace





glued on these elegant china teacups - I love how pleasantly rounded they are, and they are even prettier on the inside





added a few white treasures...





filled the teacups with teabags, sugar cubes and overflowing pearls. It would also be fun to fill the centre teacup with flowers or a candle.



what a pleasant way to have tea! I have a couple more on the go which I'll post later.

thanks again to Kathleen of Faded Charm for hosting White Wednesday, be sure to pop by her blog for lots of white treasures AND she has a giveaway too.

I'm also linking to 100 Ideas under $100 hosted by Becky at Beyond the Picket Fence, thanks Becky.

happy white wednesday and happy days,

I SO love what you did with that candelabra centrepiece. It combines two things I love, candelabras and teacups. Can't get much better than that, girl!

Excellent Job! I really enjoyed the stunning images of Candelabra - French Antique. It looks so exotic to entertain guests.
